CTI Announces 2015 Young Scholar Workshop

by Robin Lovin

 

As part of the three-year New Approaches in Theological Inquiry project, CTI will welcome advanced doctoral students and recent post-docs to Princeton on June 8-12 for a Workshop on Law and Religious Freedom. Qualified applicants in theology, religious studies, and related disciplines are invited to submit proposals through the CTI website by March 20, 2015.


Leaders for the Young Scholar Workshop include Peter Danchin, Professor of Law and Director of the International and Comparative Law Program at the University of Maryland School of Law, David Decosimo, Assistant Professor of Theology at Loyola University Maryland, and Robin Lovin, Director of Research at CTI. All three are members of the 2014-15 research team for CTI’s Inquiry on Law and Religious Freedom and will share insights from the work of the current year as well as leading discussions on the writings of workshop participants.

Applicants to the Workshop should prepare a CV, a description of their own research and writing project, and a brief letter of intent explaining their interest in the Workshop and what it will contribute to their scholarly development. Up to ten participants will be selected on the basis of these submissions. Workshop members will receive assistance with lodging and transportation costs and participate in intensive daily Workshop sessions during their week in Princeton.
